Recipe by Nancy R
"Both kids and adults like this one. You probably have most of the ingredients in your pantry already...and if you don't have cream, use 2 cups of milk. A great dish to freeze and serve at a later time. If you like a spicier tomato sauce, feel free to add your own Italian spices: garlic, basil, oregano, green pepper, etc ..."

1 (28 ounce) can
whole peeled tomatoes
heavy whipping cream
black olives, halved
1 (4.5 ounce) can
grated Parmesan cheese
This is a very good dish to take to a friend in need. A salad and bread give them a full meal.
Although I enjoyed this recipe, my family had mixed reviews. My husband said it was good but not something he would want on a regular basis. My kids, 4 and 7, had a problem with the fact that it was pink. My 7 year old said that it actually tasted pretty good anyway. I added italian seasoning and garlic to the tomatoes while they were simmering for more flavor.
This is delicious!I added Garlic with the onoin, and also more veggies than just the musrooms and tomatoes. We will make this again.
This didn't work out well for me at all. There wasn't enough sauce for 1 lb. of spaghetti, even though I added tomato juice before pouring it in. (NB: I also added oregano and basil to the tomato sauce and nutmeg to the white sauce, so they smelled and tasted good.) The spaghetti, though slightly undercooked, still got mushy in a 335 degree oven for 25 mins. (lower and less than the recipe called for). I like the layered idea and may try it again, but I'll use a thicker pasta (e.g. mostaccioli or penne) and make more of both sauces.
I found that the following was needed to make it excellent.
Bulb of garlick sliced, 1.5 cups of cheddar cheese to the sauce, 8 slices of bacon, fresh mushrooms in lieu of tined ones. Then it would get 5 stars.
made this meal for my family, all truely enjoyed it! thanks so much
I tried to cut the recipe in half. On the whole we liked it. The family vote was next time more tomatoes, less olives, and add some chicken. So we will try it again.
Just the simple recipe I was looking for. I was running low on groceries & had to feed my family of 5. Didn't have mushrooms or olives, but I added garlic and Italian spices. I even threw in a mozzarella cheese stick I pulled apart. Everyone loved it, even my picky eater!
